Workshops & Activities

Weaving an Odyssey

Part of London Literature Festival

Get to grips with warp and weft and learn about a resourceful character from The Odyssey at a drop-in tapestry weaving workshop.

Learn the story of Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, who uses her weaving as a tool to protect herself from unwanted suitors during her husband’s absence.

The London Loom is a weaving studio in Hackney in East London, created by Francesca Kletz and Brooke Dennis after tiring of their work in education and fashion. The London Loom was founded to build a community of people who love making things with their hands and appreciate how good it is for you.
